I just noticed that only the stored and dird plugins are affected.

plugin/python-fd.so is building fine with python3

So for the moment we will switch to not deliver dird and stored python2-only plugins.

It is on the list for 20.x - you can check the nightly build from time to time. It should start working with python3 in a few weeks now.
